Well, I wanted to go ahead and let everyone know that this will be my last post for a little while because I'm having surgery on Thursday April 21st and I won't be able to sit upright for two months. What l'm having is a baclofen pump replacement surgery, since its already been five years since I got it. I think it's going to be less risky than the first baclofen pump surgery because Dr. Curry is just going to change the pump out for a bigger one, not the catheter that goes all the way up the back of my neck. He might change the tube but hopefully he won't have to because the CT scan said that it was fine. If he just changes out the pump, l will only have to stay in the hospital for a day but if he changes both out, I'll have to stay for a couple of days. Having to do a surgery now kind of sucks because I will miss alot of powersoccer practice, but hopefully in a couple weeks, I can at least go watch them them practice since my dad still has to coach. Please say a little prayer for me!!!
After many months of waiting, I'm so excited to announce that I got a grant from The Challenged Athletes.org, they gave me a $1500 grant to help me get a Strike Force Power Chair for powersoccer! So with all the donations from GoFund me and the grant and all my money I had in savings, I was finally able to order my Strike Force! But it's going to be a long time before I even practice in it because I'm having surgery this Thursday. Once l do, I think my teammates are going to be scared of me but hopefully before then I will get used to it enough. The cool thing is that I can practice against my dad and I kinda want to see my mom practice with me too because that will be a funny experience to see. She'll probably be a scaredy cat though, and hopefully my dad won't play around with it and break it, since he's been known to do that too! I think the chair is mainly going to help me with catching up to the ball, especially when there's a break away. When I first started playing powersoccer there was only one kid with a Strike Force chair, now we will have 5 players with the faster chairs! I just ordered it yesterday but I think it takes like a month to get it....so more waiting!!
Boots was my first official dog. He was the secondary protector and a vacuum cleaner of the house. I remember when he was younger, he found a huge non poisonous snake in our backyard. He wasn't a good cuddle dog though but he was a good protector. Sandals was the ultimate cuddle dog (but we don't have her anymore). He used to love playing with Sandals, but she never adjusted to our new home when we moved, so we gave her to a friend. He used to always bark at the squirrels, I think he hated them because they lived so high in the trees and he could never get to them but one day he finally caught one! I don't know if he killed it or not but he seemed proud of catching it and carrying it to our back door. He would also bark at the raccoons that came around in the middle of the night to try to eat his food. And he was always barking at people at our door. Most times mom wouldn't hear the door bell but she would come ask me if someone was at the door because she would hear Boots barking. He was sometimes annoying but overall he was a pretty good dog. Everytime we went to Nanna's house, her dog Trudy would always try to nip at me and Boots would come and protect me against Trudy. Boots died because he had stones in his bladder and he was having kidney trouble so he couldn't go urinate. I think he was in so much pain that he just stopped eating and drinking. We took him to the veternarian but it was already too late, so they had to put him down. Boots was twelve years old when he died. And the funny thing is, my mom was the one who couldn't stop crying for a few days when he died, not Caleryn or me either. My mom was probably the person who mostly yelled at him because he was always biting her ankles begging for food or barking at someone outside or maybe because he would pee in the house because Caleryn would always shut the back door so he couldn't go potty. Boots is probably saying "Great, I get to see Trudy now." up in heaven. They used to always fight. I think he is at peace now. Caleryn keeps asking for him but she doesn't fully understand that he's with Jesus now.
This year for my birthday, I went to Wrestle Mainia but before that my Nana made me a German Chocolate Cake from scratch. I loved it! She bought Colbie an ice cream cake and we had our birthdays together for the first time. Then all the girls went to American Girl for Colbie and all the guys went to Shenanigans to have fun. I got to drive a go cart by myself and ride the mechanical bull. The go cart was pretty easy to drive, the only problem was the steering was kinda far so I had to really stretch out my arms and my foot got stuck under the bar of the steering wheel. I guess it's not really made for a stiff kid with cerebral palsy but it went pretty fast and that was fun! Now to the mechanical bull, thank god my mom wasn't there!!😜 I got on it twice....and both times got thrown off! The second time I fell, I kinda hurt my neck. My dad sent a video to my mom and she wasn't too happy! We played some video games then we left. Later on, me, mom and dad went to Wrestlemania (this was my big birthday gift). I think we got there right on time and got to park right in front (the last handicap spot) with no lines but as soon as we got in, omg...it was crazy! We had floor seats, they were wanting to give everyone with floor seats a wrist tag but their wifi was out so everyone had to wait. We were all packed like sardines trying to get to our seats, and no one could move. Everyone started chanting "let us in"!!!! Once we finally got to our seats, it was so loud and pretty cool to be in the new cowboys stadium. One of my favorite parts was when Shawn Michaels and Stone Cold Steve Austin and Mick Foley came out! My other favorite part was Roman Reigns beating Triple H for the title. For some reason, the fans have turned on Roman Reigns and booed him, but he's my favorite wrestler. AT&T stadium set a new all time high record for attendance with over 101,000 people! We probably should have left earlier buecause it was a nightmare trying to get out and daddy didn't go the right way.
Caleryn was in heaven playing with our cousins all weekend! We had some awesome Taco Casa! Nana and Papas house is just about finished and they got me a steering wheel for my playstation 4! Then we went to see Crazy Carols new house then we went home!

The Three Week War
The war day is in any moment now and King Captain Underpants was wondering if King Lunatic Fringe has found ten fellow knights yet. So he sent a letter to King Lunatic Fringe, which took two weeks on horseback. When the letter got to King Lunatic Fringe's castle, King Lunatic spoke to himself after he read it and in a snotty attitude he said,"Ha! He thinks that I'm so bad that nobody would like to fight for me! NOT! From my opinion, l think that I am the best leader ever because King Captain Underpants leads like he's got poo in his mouth everytime he talks!" Then King Lunatic Fringe wrote a letter back to King Captain Underpants. When King Captain Underpants read the letter it said,"Yes I got ten people to join me but, what's taking so long bra? I feel like I've been waiting for your butt for fifty million years bra. Let's get this party started bra!" King Captain Underpants then said,"Ha ha, you think you're so funny. Wait until I beat you". A week later after preparing and strategizing what the best attack to use would be, it was finally time to officially begin the war. The first attack was from Booger Face, (one of King Lunatic Fringe's warriors) which two-starred Snottrod's base. Then Snottrod got mad and attacked Booger Face and got a three-star.
My name is Cameron Broyles, I'm 16 years old and I started my blog 5 years ago when I was 11. I have paraplegic cerebral palsy and cannot communicate in a traditional fashion. I am home-schooled now but I used to go to main stream public school. My love of exploring first began with going on field trips to learn about history. I play power soccer and it's become my sport of choice! I am originally from Texas but now I live in Colorado and LOVE it! I love to travel and explore but the majority of times it is much more difficult than the average person. I want this blog to not only be my mouthpiece for my friends and family but also give some ideas and maybe light a spark for other people with disabilities to get out and explore life! I was first coerced into starting a blog from my mom and dad and I have to admit that sometimes it's not my favorite thing to do but what I love most about having a blog for these past 5 years is that it's a daily reminder of all my blessings from God and how grateful and thankful I am for everything I have in my life.
